I am the Great Grandson of Oliver Stains. Did your family own Locke's store in Maddensville. If so then we are related at some level. My father Marcus Glenn Stauffer, Sr. used to visit his Aunt Cora Stains Gerringer at their farm just outside of Maddensville. I have a note from Isaac Locke to My Great Grandfather Oliver Stains concerning a shortage of sheafs of wheat that his boys evidently cut. I remember as a little boy in the 1950s stopping at Locke's General Store and Post Office for a soda/pop on our way to Aunt Cora's and the Stains Family Reunion.
Is there still a Stains Family Reunion? What about Hershey, Cutshall, Perrigo? These are the other names on my father's maternal family. I know very little about them, their occupation etc.
